The unreleased songs served as a blueprint for the burgeoning rapper.

(AllHipHop News) Lil Yachty shocked some music fans when he admitted to writing portions of City Girls' hit single "Act Up." Yung Miami and JT are not the only Quality Control artists that had help from another songwriter in crafting records.

During an interview with 16Bars, QC's Lil Baby talked about his professional and personal relationship with Drip Harder collaborator Gunna. The YSL representative apparently penned a few bars for Baby at one point.

"I done paid Gunna to write my songs. I never put the songs out, but when I first started to rap, I used to pay him $100," admitted Lil Baby. "Like, 'I'm gonna give you a hundred, write something for me so I could learn how to record it.' I ain't never record the songs and put them out, but that's how I used to practice."

The 24-year-old Atlanta resident continued, "I had just started rapping out of nowhere. Then I'd just get him to show me little stuff like how to record a hook. I ain't know none of that. Him and [Young Thug] - them two, I'd just kinda sit back and watched them a lot."
